It’s been a little over a year since writer and director Troy Duffy said that The Boondock Saints 3 was still happening. Not much has transpired since then, but Duffy offered some new info recently.
In a Facebook Q&A session, Duffy shared an official title for the planned trilogy-maker, as well as some details on what the movie will be about. You can see what he had to say below, but be warned that there is a Boondock Saints II spoiler involved if you’ve not yet seen the sequel.
Duffy shared that the next movie in the series will be titled The Boondock Saints 3: Legion, and that the legion part of the title refers to the army of fans that now support the Saints. After the brothers MacManus, played by The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery, end up in prison at the end of the second movie, they go viral. Swarms of people who believe in what they do take to the streets to deliver vigilante justice themselves.
As fans know waiting for a Boondock Saints sequel can take quite a while, and these new updates don’t come with any information on when we might see the movie get made or released, but what do you think of the title and plot details?
